Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another. —The words of Christ, John 13.34-35
This passage from the Gospel of Saint John speaks of the commandment to love. It identifies this attribute as the one that best identifies a true disciple of Christ.
It has been said that love requires another. That love can only exist when there is a communion of persons. It has been my desire to fashion along with all of you a community of love. My hope is that we demonstrate our love for one another and thereby prove to be God’s true disciples.
With continued prayers for your salvation,
+ Father Mark +
